If you have made the decision to stay open please refer to our tips on sanitising already previously published.
If you have made the difficult decision to close it’s important that you follow the correct procedure.
- Meet with your team and explain what is happening.
- Give them the information and any relevant documentation in writing to include COVID Social Welfare application form, a letter from the salon to social welfare explaining the layoff.
- Help the team fill these forms out as this is a frightening time for people and some may not be familiar with filling them.
- Explain if people have a public service card they may be able to fill in online which may be quicker.
